Arian Foster ruled out against Browns
Sunday November 16th, 2014

With bye weeks almost behind us, these matchups are more crucial than ever for fantasy football owners trying to make a playoff push. The Ravens, Jets, Jaguars and Cowboys all take a rest this week, and due to a few late injuries, owners have some decisions to make before Week 11 kicks off in a few short hours.

NFL Picks: Get ready, because Week 11's matchups are bound to entertain

Texans RB Arian Foster was ruled out of Week 11's matchup against the Browns with a groin injury, so Alfred Blue's owners should consider starting him, as he'll be the top running back for Houston today. Rashad Jennings, who hasn't played since Week 5, will be back in the lineup against San Francisco. Should owners immediately trot the Giants' running back into their lineups, or wait until he's proved that he's completely healthy?

Elsewhere around the league, fantasy owners will be treated to some huge matchups that also have fantasy implications. The Eagles-Packers afternoon matchup should be chock-full of fantasy starters, including both quarterbacks, since Mark Sanchez proved to be a worthy fantasy starter last week. Following that on Sunday Night Football, Tom Brady and the Patriots visit Andrew Luck and the Colts in another game fantasy owners should follow closely (and a potential AFC championship preview).
